Hi! I'm new to this forum, but I'm hoping you folks can help. My husband just got a new job in Libertyville and we'll be moving to the Chicago area soon. We're in the Decatur, IL area now and could use some suggestions for a good place to live within a 30 minute commute or so from Libertyville.

Our number 1 priority is school district quality and our home price range is probably going to be in the 450-500K range. I'd love newer (anything built mid-90's or later) home with conveniences like shopping, parks, etc. nearby.

Any help you can provide will be much appreciated!

Deerfield. Search the boards for more information. This question has been asked many times and there is plenty of information to fit your needs if you search.

You wouldn't get very much for 450-500k in Deerfield. If you don't mind being a little further from the highway I'd consider Buffalo Grove or Vernon Hills. Stevenson is huge but a very solid school and Vernon Hills HS is smaller and also with a solid reputation. I think you'll get a little more for your money in one of those two. If you can go into the high 500s low 600s than I'd agree about searching in Deerfield (though taxes would likely be a bit higher as well).

Nothing wrong with Libertyville? Schools and affordability are at least on par with Deerfield.
Probably going to find more newer homes in your piece range than Buffalo Grove.

I would say Libertyville too. Great schools, great downtown, and in this market, you can find a home in your price range that was built in the last 20 years or so. Good luck!
